Known Issues#

Simplicity Studio® Version 5.8.0#





The Navigation Buttons (back, forward, etc) will not be displayed if Simplicity Studio starts up on the Simplicity IDE perspective.

Change to a different perspective such as the Launcher perspective and then back to the Simplicity IDE perspective.


Changing the Target Part in Project Configurator does not work correctly on customer hardware.

Either create a new software example for the desired target part and port in code changes or manually change the component ID in the .slcp and .slps files with a text editor and then open the Project configurator and do a Force Generation.


GDB Debug Session Launch fails with "Error in final launch sequence" popup.

Typically, the debug session will launch successfully the next time or after a Simplicity Studio restart. If the issue persists, edit the debug configuration Run > Debug configurations… and uncheck the 'Continue' box on the Startup tab. The debug session will stop before main(), but clicking Resume will run to main().


Custom Network Analyzer Decoders no longer work starting with version

JavaScript custom decoders need to be converted to LUA decoders. See Custom Decoders.


IAR Toolchain linker command line length can exceed Windows line limit.

When the IAR toolchain is used to compile projects from the Simplicity Studio IDE under Windows, it is possible to get linker errors if the linker line length exceeds the Windows limit of 30,000 characters.

The work around is to edit the project properties [C/C++ Build] > [Settings] > [IAR Linker for ARM] [Expert settings] and to use this command line: @echo "$(OBJS) $(USER_OBJS)" > linker_file.xcl; ${COMMAND} -f linker_file.xcl $(LIBS) ${OUTPUT_FLAG}${OUTPUT_PREFIX}${OUTPUT} ${FLAGS}


Blank Project Wizard or Log In windows seen with MacOS Ventura or later.

When running Simplicity Studio under MacOS Ventura or later, if blank windows are seen for the new project wizard, login page or other windows, the internal browser used by Simplicity Studio might not have permissions to make changes to the system.

The work around is to go to the MacOS System Settings -> Privacy & Security -> App Management and to add Simplicity Studio as an application that can update or delete other applications.
